Re: New Treknology Into Darkness
The fact that the conversation took place is not an issue since it would hook up to the nearby transmitter of the ship and the station. What is silly is that Scotty could engage in an unauthorised conversation on a secure facility without them noticing.
Are they even looking for that kind of thing? Would they be able to discern his transmission from any of the other crew using their communicators?
I didn't have a problem with that, personally...
